Yesterday night my girlfriend’s family and I went to have a dinner party to celebrate her maternal granny’s birthday.You could imagine that hilarious scene where around 100 person sitting together.What a large family!
Of course,alcohol is a sort of necessity on the table and this time we took wine.
I believe westerners will never love the way that Chinese people drink because most of us will finish a glass(not goblet) of any alcohol in one shot.At that night,I was persuaded to drink two glasses with that “quick style”.I have to admit that I’m really not good at drinking.Fortunately two glasses of wine didn’t touch my utmost yet.
Nevertheless a pity guy was there.After vomiting,one uncle of my girlfriend was just sleeping on the chairs.I don’t think he felt comfortable at all.Is that the meaning of drinking?I disagree.That is perhaps another bad habit/custom in Chinese culture.
I have some tips to help avoiding drunk.Hopefully they will work on most of you.
1.Full of your tummy before drinking.
2.Take some milk before drinking.
3.Do not mix up different kind of alcohol.
4.After drinking,eating some fruits such as apple.
Please don’t ask me the reasons since I only heard it before from some “professional alcoholics”.Working or not,you try it by yourself.However,I still need to emphasize that improper drinking is not a good idea.
